About

Emergency Medicine Physicians care for undifferentiated and unscheduled patients with illnesses or injuries requiring immediate medical attention. In their role as first-line providers, emergency physicians are responsible for initiating investigations and interventions to diagnose and/or treat patients in the acute phase (including initial resuscitation and stabilization), coordinating care with physicians from other specialties, and making decisions regarding a patient's need for hospital admission, observation, or discharge. Emergency physicians generally practice in hospital emergency departments, pre-hospital settings via emergency medical services, and intensive care units

  • Is a TSH value of 3.17 normal in 9 months of pregnancy?

    A TSH level of 3.17 in the third trimester of pregnancy is on the upper end of the normal range. Depending on whether or not you have any clinical manifestations, I would recommend that you have your free T4 levels checked to see if overt hypothyroidism or subclinical hypothyroidism correlates with your laboratory values as well as your clinical symptoms. Remember that these normal ranges are dependent upon your age as well. If you have any major concerns, I would recommend that you speak with a endocrinologist physician. I hope this helps. READ MORE
